Call for Workshops

ECIR 2020 workshops provide a platform for presenting novel ideas and research results in a focused and interactive way. Workshops can be of either a half-day (3 hours plus breaks) or a full day (6 hours plus breaks). Workshops are encouraged to be as dynamic and interactive as possible and should lead to a concrete outcome, such as the publication of a summary paper and/or workshop proceedings.

Workshop proposals should contain the following information:

  • Title, and abstract of the workshop;
  • Motivation, and relevance to ECIR;
  • Workshop goals/objectives coupled with desired outcomes;
  • Format/structure of the workshop: planned activities, tentative schedule of events etc.;
  • Intended audience, including how participants will be selected/invited;
  • Duration: a full day or half day workshop;
  • Resources: what resources will be needed to deliver the workshop;
  • Indicate if the workshop is related to or follows on from another workshop; if so, please, identify which conference it was previously held at, the past attendance and outcomes, and why another workshop is needed;
  • Organisers with brief bio (2-3 sentences) of each with respect to the content of the workshop;
  • Any other relevant information to support your proposal (e.g. programme committee, list of invited speakers, overall vision/approach etc.)
  • Workshop proposals will be reviewed by the workshop committee. A summary of the workshop will be published in the conference proceedings.

All proposals should be submitted electronically through the conference submission system and must be in English.

Deadline for submission of workshop proposals is 1st September 2019, 11:59 pm (AoE), with notification of acceptance on October 1, 2019.
